KCC Precedent & Guidance Documents
Guidance Document Index
Guidance documents are records of general applicability that lack the force of law but state an agency’s current approach to or interpretation of law. Guidance documents may also contain general statements of policy that describe how and when an agency will exercise discretionary functions. The KCC must designate and maintain a public list of all guidance documents. Although a party to an adjudicatory proceeding may typically rely on guidance documents, the KCC can also act at variance with a guidance document if there is a reasonable justification for doing so.
